Staf Ping Failed : Please check the network connection and make sure all firewalls are disabled.

I often met this issue, and re-check the firewall status is disable.All of thing seem well but staf installation doesn’t work. Recently I find the way to solve this:

 

1.go to the ESXI /workbench and edit the file /etc/hosts

2.add the FQDN of ESXI /workbench into hosts file.such as

——————————————————

vi /etc/hosts

192.168.10.1 esxi01.xxx.com esxi01

192.168.10.10 workbench.xxx.com workbench

——————————————————

3.intall STAF into ESXI host via workbench installation helper.

4.done well
